Riverdogs Night Baseball Game

April 19, 2012 – Highlights of our Riverdogs Ball Game are: Good food – hot dogs, bacon and pimento cheese (Louisa’s included cole slaw); cheese fries; and creamy Charleston Ice with mango/strawberry mix. Grand slam. Midget wrestling!  Seriously, midget wrestling.  We think more people were watching that than the game at some point. Our seats…

Well, that was an exciting 1000 miles

May 11-12, 2012 – Moving always brings its own challenges; packing, cleaning, sending stuff you actually did need with the movers (thank goodness for Walmart), and driving 1000 miles in just over a day.  The movers were pretty good, they just showed up an hour and half outside their two hour window.  But, we still…

Restaurant review: Graze

We’ve heard good things about Graze.  I mean, what’s not to like about a changing, eclectic menu with dishes such as lobster mac ‘n cheese, Buffalo shrimp tacos with blue cheese slaw, shrimp bisque, and steak?  So we headed over after work for a dinner date.  We did make reservations, but they weren’t necessary –…

Review: Heart Woodfire Kitchen

Heart Woodfire Kitchen has a diverse menu emphasizing fresh ingredients, and an industrial/spartan vibe (it does get loud when it’s crowded – and it will get crowded).  We sampled the pork green chili with thick pieces of tender pork, a few diced carrot pieces, and topped with cheddar cheese and sour cream.  If you like…

Review: The Barbeque Joint

Okay, so we haven’t been to The Barbeque Joint’s store in North Charleston, but we did get to sample their great food from their food truck.  (And is it just me, or is there just something so very cool about food trucks?  I love them – maybe it’s the mobile aspect?)  Anyway, we tried a…

Review: Gene’s Haufbrau

Gene’s Haufbrau is a dark (rather large) restaurant/bar in West Ashley. It also happens to have some great food (think: fabulous wings, as good as many in Buffalo NY, huge/juicy/fabulous burgers, amazing steak fries) and drink (a few good draft options, and a variety of cans/bottles). We thought the food was quite good, and would…

Review: Smoky Oak Taproom

We like BBQ. Unfortunately, we don’t like sauces that are heavy on the vinegar or mustard, and we’re in the heart of Carolina BBQ country. Fortunately for us we found Smoky Oak Taproom on James Island. Yes, it’s a bit of a trek from Charleston, but they’ve got great brisket and pulled pork (the ribs…
